RIMSKY-KORSAKOV / Scheherazade
An illustrious tour de force, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade transports

incomparable storytelling. The works of Richard Strauss take center stage as
we shine the spotlight on the Colorado Symphony’s principal horn, Michael
Thornton, and the masterful yet playful Second Horn Concerto.
